Never Alone

on August 18, 2015

person-409127_1280_CC0As single women, we often come face-to-face with Genesis 2:18, which declares that it’s not good for man to be alone. Yet, that’s exactly where many of us have found ourselves. Alone. Wanting to be a helpmeet. Desiring the partnership of marriage.

Sometimes this verse feels like a slap in the face to those of us singles who would rather be married. We work to reconcile this verse with our current status. For many, it feels as if God too has left us alone.

I wish I could say to you, this—this is the answer to your questions. It would be fabulous for someone to be able to explain exactly why we’re not a helpmeet yet. Sadly, God doesn’t operate that way. His Word says He knows the plans He has for us, but it doesn’t promise easy answers to our questions.

This is what I can offer you if you’re in a place of questioning and uncertainty. God’s Word says we are never alone. He is with us always. He is our answer and our consolation in times of solitude. Hold tight to this truth when your singleness feels unfair and hurtful.

The LORD your God is with you, He is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing.                                                                                                                         ~Zephaniah 3:17
